Warren County domestic violence services restarted


Daily staff report

The Phoenix Project officially began offering services for those experiencing domestic violence and sexual assault in Warren County May 1.

Program director Tammy Sharpe and Trish Kerns will be offering client services to residents in the county. Those services include a 24-hour hotline, supportive counseling, support groups and education regarding signs of abuse.

Sharpe and Kerns will also provide accompaniment when necessary if individuals must seek medical attention, and will walk victims through the legal process, accompanying them to court when necessary as well.

Paula Johnson also started offering support services to victims of sexual assault May 1. Johnson is the liaison between the Phoenix Project and the Laurel Center in Winchester.

Sharpe, Kerns and Johnson were all previously employed with Harmony Place before the shelter closed in the fall of 2013.

Sharpe said the office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Both she and Kerns will work the 24-hour hotline, though if neither are available the call will go to the statewide hotline.

Sharpe and Kerns can be reached at 540-313-6012. The hotline number is 540-313-6009. Sharpe can also be reached at tammysharpe.phoenixproject@gmail.com.

The project's mailing address is P.O. Box 1747, Front Royal.

Sharpe said she and Kerns are also looking for volunteers and will hold an informational meeting at Samuels Public Library in White Meeting Room B on May 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
